Choose a template that suits your blog content. It not only adds to the blog's beauty but will also accentuate the content well. Bad design is always a put-off to readers.
Grammar - Depending on the language you use, blogging just makes it imperative that you are reasonably good with your grammar skills and proficiency if not a master. Remember your audience is a mix of both; the ones who are experts and the ones who are not.
Respond when someone likes or comments on your post. Visit their blog and send your comment love. Courtesy brings in more readers and friends.
